“Today we lose a shining light, a sweet and cheerful soul. ” (Family).
The heroine of the famous comedy-adventure film “6 Days 7 Nights” by Ivan Reitman (released June 12, 1998), in a duet with Harisson Ford, will no longer film. American actress Anne Heche died in Los Angeles on August 11, 2022 at the age of 53 (she was born in Ohio on May 25, 1969).
Anne Heche was also known for having starred in a number of successful films, most notably Mike Newell’s Donnie Brasco (released February 28, 1997), the story of an FBI agent played by Johnny Depp (she is his wife); “Volcano” by Mick Jackson (released April 25, 1997), where she was the Seismologist on Duty; ‘Men of Influence’ directed by Barry Levinson (released January 9, 1998) opposite Dustin Hoffman and Robert De Niro (Anne Heche and Robert De Niro call on Hollywood producer Dustin Hoffman to help create a diversion in a manners scandal , in which the President is involved in the United States by organizing a war … in Albania); “Psycho” by Gus Van Sant (released December 4, 1998), a rather disappointing remake of the legendary Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho…
1997 and 1998 were good years for Anne Heche, but she didn’t carry on as brilliantly. She was ostracized by Hollywood for ten years when she formalized her homosexual affair with her companion (also known) at a social night for the release of Volcano. In 2020, she revealed: “I was told that if I came with her I would lose my contract with Fox. (…) The stigma around this relationship was so terrible that my multi-million dollar contract was canceled and I never worked again for ten years. ». Her public behavior also helped transform her into an actress who was considered a little “crazy” (her 2001 autobiography is titled Call Me Crazy) after she split from her partner three and a half years later would have. She was actually spotted under the apparent influence of illegal substances. His coming out received a lot of publicity, causing repeated controversy but also allowing some homosexuals to come out of hiding.
In this autobiography, she recounts how she was raped during her childhood by her father, who later “confessed” his homosexuality before dying of AIDS in 1983 when she was 14 years old. That same year, at age 18, her older brother killed himself in a car accident, which she considered a suicide. For her part, her mother is a believer in conversion theories that aim to change people’s (especially her daughter’s) sexual orientation. Anne Heche then married a man, had a child and after the separation in another affair another child.
In 2018, Anne Heche also revealed that she had often been sexually harassed in the film industry and didn’t hesitate to take the rap out of producer Harvey Weinstein, who himself denied it. She explained that her abused childhood made her more resilient to progress as an adult, although she lost roles because of it.
From the 2000s, having fewer proposals in cinema, Anne Heche turned to theater and television instead. However, she still acted in several films, most notably Nick Cassavets’ “John Q” (released February 15, 2002), starring Denzel Washington (the father worth saving his child) and James Woods (the doctor ) and more recently , Peter Facinelli’s The Vanished (released February 28, 2020), where she is the mother of a child who has disappeared at a campsite, these last two films were unsuccessful. She also starred in other films that will be released in cinemas after her death: “Chasing Nightmares”, “Frankies Meets Jack”, “Wildfire. The Legend of the Cherokke Ghost Horse”, “Supercell”, “Full Ride”, ” What Remains” and on TV: “Girl In Room 13”, “The Idol”.
The circumstances of Anne Heche’s death are tragic. She was the victim of a very serious traffic accident on August 5, 2022 in Los Angeles and was in a coma until her death was declared on August 11, 2022. Victim but most likely responsible for two accidents, first a first against the garage of a building, but she was able to escape and walk, flee, but then she crashed into another building and her vehicle (a blue Mini Cooper) caught fire. It took five hours and fifty-nine firefighters to extinguish the fire and evacuate them from the car to save them. She would have been conscious when she was first transferred to the hospital, but would have lost consciousness at that point. The tenant of the premises would have been slightly injured in the fire and would have lost all her belongings.
Shortly before his double accident, a surveillance camera was filming his vehicle traveling at full speed without braking, almost hitting a pedestrian on the pavement and then a Jaguar without injuring the driver. Contrary to initial rumours, Anne Heche was not under the influence of alcohol while driving. According to initial blood tests by the police, she is said to have consumed cocaine, which, however, could not be further confirmed without a toxicological analysis.
His agent shared his serious condition on August 8, 2022: “She has a serious lung injury that requires mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgery. She is in a coma and has not regained consciousness since the accident. ». Even worse was the following news on August 11, 2022: “As a result of her accident, Anne suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and is in a critically comatose state. She is not expected to survive. She has long since decided to donate her organs and is being kept alive to see if any are viable. ».
A few hours later, on August 11, 2022, Anne Heche was officially pronounced dead under California law. However, she remained artificially ventilated for another three days and waited for the forthcoming organ removal. This happened on August 14, 2022 after several recipients were identified. Organ donations took place during the day, then respiratory support was interrupted.
His family expressed their great sadness: “Anne had a big heart and touched everyone she met with her generous spirit. More than her extraordinary talent, she spread kindness and joy as her life’s work, specifically pushing the boundaries by accepting who you love. She will be remembered for her brave honesty and sorely missed for her light. ».
Apparently, the family (they leave behind two sons, Homer in their 20s and Atlas in their 12s) have a hard time convincing themselves that they won’t survive the accident, which is believed to be their own fault. . The family has actually agreed to “turn her off” from her artificial life support (aside from worrying about organ donation). Three days later, the same and sad admission of failure emerged in the family of artist Dmitri Vrubel, who had heart complications compounded by Covid-19. There, too, the family decided to “unplug him” if his condition was irreversible. Unfortunately, these two examples of the end of life occur very often when a person gets into an extremely critical situation as a result of an accident or illness. The parents probably didn’t want to admit that to their little Archie…
